It is Orica-AIS not GreenEdge-AIS

The Inner Ring June 23, 2013 at 11:56 pm

Fixed, thanks.

Andrew June 23, 2013 at 9:43 pm

Irish RR Women – 1st Melanie Spath Cycleways CC/Team TIBCO

Honza Fridrichovský June 23, 2013 at 9:43 pm

Czech womens’s RR champion is Martina Sáblíková

Anonymous June 24, 2013 at 12:52 am

The ice skater?

MikeF June 24, 2013 at 8:32 am

The same one. Summer training. She was also the Czech road race and time trial champion in 2010

Anonymous June 24, 2013 at 9:18 am

and her team is Etixx-IHNED

Anonymous June 23, 2013 at 9:45 pm

Norwegian women’s RR champion: Cecilie Gotaas Johnsen (Hitec Products)

Graham W Kidd June 23, 2013 at 9:50 pm

Thanks @Inrng. This is fantastic to have them all on one easy to find spot. BMC OPQS have done well, so well done them, but so have RSLT – maybe a team of champions but not a champion team?

balkou June 23, 2013 at 9:53 pm

Tamouridis won both championships (ITT & Road) in Greece. I guess Porto San Elpidio and all the Giro climbs paid good dividends!

Bisiklet Sporu (@BisikletSporu) June 23, 2013 at 9:53 pm

Turkish Men’s RR Champion: Nazım Bakırcı (Torku seker Spor)

Anil June 23, 2013 at 10:04 pm

Turkish men’s RR champion: Nazim Bakirci (Torku Seker Spor)

Martijn June 23, 2013 at 10:05 pm

Good to see Hoogerland finally in the news in a positive way. Hopefully he can keep his form for the Tour, where he will be an asset with his attacking style. Also good that Vacansoleil wins two titles with Hoogerland and Rujano, it might improve their chances of finding a new sponsor. They will be less happy that their former leader Stijn Devolder started getting results again as soon as they fired hi.

It’s a shame that Saxo will not bring the combative Michael Mørkøv to the Tour, especially since I am not to sure about Contador. I don’t think it’s a smart move for them to put all their eggs in one basket.

TailWindHome June 23, 2013 at 10:09 pm

Anyone else misread the name of the New Zealand Women’s Champion?

Just me?

Anonymous June 23, 2013 at 10:16 pm

Yes I thought Guns & Roses also

Rob June 24, 2013 at 3:07 pm

Jan June 23, 2013 at 10:54 pm

Gasore Hategeka is the new champion in Rwanda from today onwards.

The Inner Ring June 23, 2013 at 11:58 pm

Thanks. There’s a good read about him in The New Yorker:

Jan June 24, 2013 at 7:55 pm

Thanks, very nice indeed. I’ve read it before.

Japan National Championships, both Men/Women, were held yesterday, Jun 23rd (see link – official result in PDF).

The Inner Ring June 24, 2013 at 8:19 am

Thanks, was the date changed as I thought Doi won it at a different time last year?

Arashiro’s win earns him a place in the Europcar team for the Tour de France.

itmofnw June 24, 2013 at 11:49 am

Last year the race schedule was changed due to London Olympic Games, despite no UCI points are awarded. Usually it’s held same time frame like most of other countries.
Hope Yukiya will in by this dominating victory, but I am worried as I remember TDF 2011 which started from Vandee…

itmofnw June 24, 2013 at 12:25 pm

No worry anymore. Yukiya Arashiro is in. (see link – tweet and photo from his fiance and EUC PR).

Amy June 24, 2013 at 5:57 am

Great job.
But Japan’s RR championships took place just last Sunday. Not earlier in this year.

BorutV June 24, 2013 at 7:23 am

Slovenia: Luka Pibernik (Radenska), Polona Batagelj (Polet)

AndersB June 24, 2013 at 8:10 am

Danish RR womens:
Kamilla Sofie Vallin (Team Rytger)

Adam June 24, 2013 at 10:33 am

Thanks for this, great little table of results!

Lebanese RR National Champion:
Hassan El Hajj
Time Trial National Champ:
Salah Rabah

The Inner Ring June 24, 2013 at 11:40 am

Hi, have you got a link to that so I can confirm the result please?

Tricky Hawes June 24, 2013 at 11:45 am

So not a single roadrace champ for Sky this year? (Tho they have at least one TT winner in EBH.)

Bit of a surprise for such a powerful (and expensive) squad, no?

The Inner Ring June 24, 2013 at 11:48 am

It’s always a difficult race. Look at other countries where Rabo/Blanco have often been done over in recent years, the team needs to ride as a team but often riders have private ambitions.

Tricky Hawes June 24, 2013 at 11:53 am

Sure. And guessing Uran and Henao didn’t go back for the Colombian race?

Christian June 24, 2013 at 2:00 pm

The Colombian national championship road race was held on the same day as Liege-Bastogne-Liege. This explains why Henao, Urán, Betancur, Quintana and the other Euro-based Colombians did not take part in it. In fact, it is very rare to see the Colombian national champion racing outside of Colombia, as the race usually features only domestic-based racers. They also can’t hold the race in mid-June because it conflicts with the Vuelta a Colombia

The easy solution for this problem would be to hold the race in January or February. The weather is going to be pretty much the same anyway

Anonymous June 24, 2013 at 12:37 pm

The SKY parted for Cavendish, just for old times sake eh. Nice one Mark.

Fitri Majid June 24, 2013 at 1:09 pm

Malaysian national champs results are here


just fyi

James June 24, 2013 at 5:23 pm

Interesting to see that Cavendish, Greipel and Sagan are all going to be wearing their national colours when fighting for green over the next month.

Željko June 24, 2013 at 8:48 pm
Alex June 25, 2013 at 3:41 am

Hi InnerRing –

When you originally posted this, you listed Iran among the other countries, but since then you’ve dropped them off the list completely. Why is that?

This past weekend both the TT and RR champions were determined.

The Inner Ring June 25, 2013 at 8:02 am

Because I couldn’t find the results… I’ll add them to the list, thanks.

balkou June 25, 2013 at 6:24 am

greek women’s nat champs also a double winner with Eleni Mihalitsa TSAVARI (SC Thiseas).

The Inner Ring June 25, 2013 at 8:35 am

Thanks for all the updates and info so far.

G June 25, 2013 at 2:22 pm
Sopy June 28, 2013 at 6:15 am

I was wondering, since Cavendish is currently wearing the British colours for Tour de France, if he wins Road Race championship this year, which jersey would he wear? The rainbows jersey? I mean, in general, if a national road race champion wins the world road race championship in the same year, he should be wearing the rainbows jersey right?
